Valmet will supply a biomass power plant to DONG Energy's Asnæs coal-fired power plant located in Kalundborg, Denmark.
By converting its electricity and heat production from coal to sustainable biomass at the Asnaes power plant, DONG will be taking a step towards reducing its CO2 emissions.
The order is included in Valmet's 2Q17 orders received. The value of the order is approximately €80 million. The plant is scheduled to be in commercial operation in late 2019.
"Valmet is very pleased to be part of Denmark's decarbonisation programme and selected technology partner for DONG Energy. DONG Energy has taken exemplary steps in converting its old coal fired power plants to modern, more sustainable power plants which are 100% powered by renewable fuels," stated Kai Mäenpää, Vice President, Energy Sales and Services Operations, Valmet.
Valmet's delivery consists of a 140 MWth biomass-fired HYBEX power boiler plant featuring bubbling fluidised bed (BFB) technology. The parameters for the boiler are 50 kg/s, 100 bar and 540°C. Valmet DNA automation system covers the whole plant and includes also information management and safety related systems.
The delivery also includes fluegas treatment consisting of a baghouse filter, combustion air humidification, fluegas condensing, condensate treatment and a stack. Additionally, Valmet will supply associated equipment, complete power plant buildings above the ground as well as complete electrification and instrumentation.
